8:12 am
@everybody knows about the @z-pack. @something that you can not take @if you have a viral infection, @right? @>> that's correct. @azithmycin or the z-back as some @people like to call it is @something for a bacterial @fiction only. @back ter y'all infections take a @good 7 to 10 days to brew. @your sinus fictions, they @usually take time, but they @almost always start as a virus @type illness. @symptomatic like ibuprophen, and @they will help. @and also taking care of yourself @and also taking care of @yourself. @lots of fluids, rest, good food. @>> reporter: so angel you said @-- angela, you said ibuprofen. @i love that. @i talked to a couple of doctors @and she say take 600 to 800 @ibuprophen and take cough drops @and that kind of moves things @around. @is that a good suggestion? @>> anti-inflammatory drugs like @ibuprofen and naproxen aleave
8:13 am
@in make in the body. take them @with food. @you need to avoid them if you @have any kidney problems, but, @yes, with the viruses, it is an @inflammation and those things @help to decrease that @inflammation. @>> reporter: if someone is sick @now, obviously go to the minute @clinic and get the flu shot. @it is not too late. @what suggestions can you give @folks. @>> if you are sick, stay home. @we want -- @>> alcides: @ @>> alcides: so easy. @>> avoid spreading it to other @people. @if you cough. @cover your coughs and sneeze @appropriately. @instead of coughing or sneeze @instead of coughing or sneezing @into your hand, but coughing @into the sleep of your arm or @into a kleenex. @good hand washing, and again @just taking care of yourself. @adequate fluid. @adequate rest and good nutrition @is important aspect of keeping @yourself well. @>> alcides: getting rest is @something that i wanted to do -- @four or five hours sleep and i @was sick for four or five weeks.
8:14 am
@thank you, angela, for being @with us. @have a great weekend. @>> thank you, you too. @>> alcides: thank you. @ hey, there, jim, somehow it @going? @>> jim: it is going pretty good @>> jim: it is going pretty @good. @the cool temperatures this @morning, they are going to @slowly warm up through the day @and that northerly wind sticks @around as we go through the day. @eventually by tomorrow, we start @that warming trend with these @winds turning more toward an @easterly direction. @as you look outside right now @you continue to see beautiful @you continue to see @beautiful-looking conditions @with plenty of sun. @but you just don't see that @picture is just how cool it is @outside. @but these temperatures most @everywhere are in the 30s or the @40st. @but not until the coastline in @pinellas county. @that's where it is a little bit @warmer running in the 50s. @but not seeing a whole lot of @people walking on the beach this @morning. @it is just simply a little bit @-- too coal out there right now. @46 degrees out there right now. @dew point at 37. @humidity at 71%.
8:15 am
@at 5 miles per hour. @everybody is sitting either in @the 30s and 40s except for right @along the coastline. @pinellas county, clearwater at @51. @st. petersburg has a 52. @and last hour brooksville below @freezing and got back up above @that mark. @sitting at 34 degrees. @crystal river at 36. @and then 40s throughout the @interior. @across the northern part of the @state, still seeing plenty of @30s across the panhandle. @gainesville at 39 degrees. @tallahassee has a 35. @jacksonville at 41. @even down across the southern @part of this state, we are @seeing temperatures down into @the lower 50s. @big cooldown across the state @because you can see these @temperatures running especially @across central florida between, @say, 5 to in some cases up to 16 @degrees colder compared to this @time yesterday. @now the high is sitting back to @our west. @that is going to slowly meander
8:16 am
@we still have plenty of clear @skies. @plenty of sun for today and the @winds come out of a northerly @direction. @that continues to kind of @reinforce the cooler air for @today this @today @today. @that is why the temperatures @will struggle to get into the @lower 60s for today but once @that high moves to our east, we @have those winds coming in out @of an easterly direction that @moderates those temperatures. @that will start tomorrow. @because watch that high moves @right over the state. @plenty of sun for today. @and really over the next several @days, and then we start to warm @things up as we get into next @week. @same time watching a front to @the north, and that will bring @us a slight chance of a couple @of showers as we get into the @middle of next week. @as you notice right here, you @are not seeing much moisture @with that front. @that's why we will keep that @rain chance at about 30%. @forecast for today though looks @good. @plenty of sun. @a bit on the cool side. @daytime high of 63 degrees. @then for tonight, one more @chilly night, overnight low of 4 @chilly night, overnight low of
